What a month we’ve had, I’m sure most of you reading this will be aware of the terrible weather events and subsequent floods experienced in certain parts of Cumbria during the month of December. And as the month went on this has now extended to other areas of the Northwest.
Much of my old town of Kendal was affected, and it has been heartbreaking to hear of people having to leave their homes, and businesses unable to operate for months to come.
The town in which I now live has been mostly untouched. It did rain a lot, I think that currently it’s now rained fairly steadily for the last 6 weeks.
When the floods first happened I was away in Copenhagen, I heard and watched the news via social media and Sky News. Whilst my home was left untouched, I could see that with all trains north of Preston cancelled, plus the A590 closed there would be a problem getting home. In the end a hire car got me home, the main road had just been reopened, and vehicles were fed on in convoy.
Since then my activities have been mostly confined to my immediate area. The A591 now has a hole in it north of Grasmere, which won’t be fixed in the near future. The round trip to the North Lakes area is now extensive, and this means that bookings in the Keswick area will depend upon your exact requirements.
Despite the gap in the A591 I had several clients make the round trip to see me when I was offering incalls in the Windermere area, and I also had a very successful incall in Barrow-in-Furness. Thank you to everyone who came to see me on those days, and sorry to those I had to turn away. I have already set a couple of dates in January for my next incalls, which will be in the Lancaster area 16th-17th and 27th-28th (the later dates are fully booked) January so if you think you’d like to make an appointment just get in touch. Any further incall dates I’ll post as soon as they are definite.
I’ve had a wonderful Christmas so far, it’s been quiet and pressure free,and I’m looking forward very much to the New Year.
Best wishes for now, and 2016
